À bruit secret. Hearing in Art

What does the River Rhine in Basel actually sound like? Can voices or the din of the city be used as visual or sculptural material? How have jungle noises changed over the past few years? Can sound waves be registered other than through the ears? Museum Tinguely’s series on the human senses in art continues with an array of auditory encounters with the known and unknown soundscapes of this earth. The group exhibition will showcase works in various media from the Baroque period to the present.
